PopCap's iPad-optimized puzzler Bejeweled HD leads as the platform's biggest seller in its premiere week, overtaking longtime chart leader Angry Birds Space HD and Halfbrick's price-dropped Fruit Ninja HD.

Sega's platformer Sonic the Hedgehog 4 Episode II and Adult Swim's Extinction Squad also report fast sales in their premiere week, while Gameloft's NOVA 3 and Defiant Development's Ski Safari disappear from the top ten after promising debuts last week.

Here are this week's top free iPad applications:

1. Are You Smarter Than A 5th Grader? & Friends Free (Ludia)
2. Feed Me Oil HD (Chillingo)
3. MotoHeroz HD (Ubisoft)

9. Glow Bugs (Backflip Studios)
10. Enigmatis: Ghosts of Maple Creek (Big Fish)

Ludia's social trivia app Are You Smarter Than A 5th Grader? & Friends Free heads up this week's free charts, as Chillingo's physics puzzler Feed Me Oil HD and RedLynx's side-scrolling racer MotoHeroz finish at second and third place after recently becoming free-to-play.

Last week's top title Highway Rider drops to fourth place in today's results, while Backflip Studios earns a pair of chart spots with NinJump Deluxe HD Free and its recently released action title Glow Bugs.
